About Echeveria ‘Atlantis’

Echeveria ‘Atlantis’ is a gorgeous hybrid succulent created by famed hybridizer, Renee O’Connell. 

With its wavy edges, you can see how Echeveria ‘Atlantis’ got its name! Its leaves are a glaucous blue-green color and can handle a good amount of direct sunlight each day. As with all Echeveria species, Echeveria ‘Atlantis’ needs lots of light to keep its compact rosette shape. 

In the cooler months, when you hold back water, Echeveria ‘Atlantis’ takes on the most beautiful peachy pink tones on her edges. One nickname for this that you might find in your searches is ‘Peaches and Cream.’

About Echeveria ‘Alfred’

Echeveria ‘Alfred’ is known in Korea by the name Echeveria ‘Moon Fairy’ so you might have more luck finding one by that name. I had no idea it was rare, but apparently it is and I have one! 

Echeveria ‘Alfred’ has light green, glaucous leaves with an indentation down the middle of the leaves which gives the rosette a really neat spiral effect when you take a step back and look at it from a distance. 

The parentage of Echeveria ‘Alfred’ is hybridhybrid A variety of succulent created from crossbreeding two different types succulents of E. elegans and E. pulidonis which totally makes sense to me. I can see both parents in this rare hybrid! 

As with all other Echeveria species, Echeveria ‘Alfred’ or ‘Moon Fairy’ is one succulent that loves lots of light. If acclimated properly, it can handle full sunfull sun direct sunlight for at least 8 hours of the day and will keep its compact rosette shape.

About Echeveria chihuahuaensis

Echeveria chihuahuaensis has one of my favorite color combos – mint green and magenta. Its smooth leaves come to a sharp magenta point. If left untouched, it looks like the texture of fine porcelain.

Unlike most other Echeverias, Echeveria chihuahuaensis looks best in the cooler months. I have no idea why, but in the few years I’ve owned them this has been the case year after year.  I’m thinking that the cooler temps and less water brings out her beautiful stress colors. 

It tends to bloom in the Spring and Summer so be on the lookout for beautiful pink flowers on long inflorescences then.

Be sure to keep air flowing around your Echeveria chihuahuaensis. The leaves are tightly packed on top of each other and any moisture caught between the leaves will cause it to rot.

Crassula perforata ‘String of Buttons’ Care Guide

Growing Season:
Winter

Dormant Season:
Summer

About Crassula perforata ‘String of Buttons’

Crassula perforata is also known as ‘Necklace Vine’  and is native to South Africa. It chases its light source and will either grow straight up, turning into a small bush or if grown in a hanging planter underneath a patio cover will trail over the sides of the pot. Crassula perforata is a scrambling succulent that grows through and over other bushes.

Crassula perforata blooms tiny flowers on the ends of its branches in the summer. After the flowers have dried up, cut them off and the branches will continue to grow and will probably multiply to create a fuller plant.

Crassula perforata propagates easily by stem cuttings. Simply clip the stem and stick it right back in dry succulent soil. It is best to take cuttings in the fall or spring.  

The leaf margins often have reddish tinges when exposed to bright light. Crassula perforata is called ‘Necklace Vine’ because the leaves can be rotated around on the stem just like beads on a string or ‘String of Buttons’ because the opposing pairs of lower cordate leaves appear threaded onto the stems.

Bring it inside for the winter as it will not tolerate frost.
